“The bears then ran into the forest,” said Arcturos spokesman Panos Stefanou, the German Press Agency on Friday. Campaigners want to be sure this doesn’t happen again and have placed wooden pallets in the canal for the bears to climb on should this happen again, he added. They are also monitoring the area to see how the bear will behave and whether the three rescued bear cubs need further assistance, it said.
The rescue took place on Thursday. The wildlife protection organization published several videos and photos from the action. Arcturos has saved the lives of dozens of bears over the past few decades. A total of 20 are currently living under the protection of the organization. Twelve little bears have already been released back into the wild, said Stefanou.
